5.0 out of 5 stars Child of DElight! 24 July 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3 + PlayStation 4| Edition:Deluxe Edition|Verified Purchase
This has quickly become one of my favourite games. It's a sort of "platform RPG", with all the elements you'd expect - extra characters with different skills, skills that can be levelled up, Oculi (weapon gems) that can be crafted and attached for improvements, a story about saving the world and a tiny companion (although Iggy is useful and not at all annoying, which makes a change).

Everybody talks in rhyme, and the writing is witty (one of the NPCs is cynical about mint, and another character struggles to speak in rhyme, which is a constant source of amusement). The art style is gorgeous, it has that hand-drawn look, and the close-ups when characters are talking reminds me a bit of Little King's Story (another superb pseudo-RPG). The musical score is fantastic throughout (it was composed by Béatrice Martin aka Cœur de Pirate, and the end song "Off to Sleep" inspired me to check out her other stuff - I also note the Child of Light soundtrack is available as an album).

My only complaint about the game is it ended too quickly - I got through it before I'd upgraded anybody to the skills which become available later in the game (which cost two skill points), however the difficulty (on "hard") and the learning curve is pitched perfectly up to that point. I should stress I don't think it was too short - just that I would have liked some extra time to level up a bit more, and some harder enemies to follow to make that worthwhile.

The deluxe edition comes with some extra in-game content, an A2 size poster (which I can't find a decent frame for), an art book and an Iggy keyring (I haven't tried powering him up yet, but he is weighty and seems good quality).

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream-like 1 May 2014
By a.k. VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3 + PlayStation 4| Edition:Deluxe Edition|Verified Purchase
I ordered this without any previous knowledge of the title because, as a cynical and beleaguered man of 44 years, I am absolutely sick to the core of FPS and Racing franchises.
After ceaselessly mocking me for buying a "girlie kid's game" my 11 year-old got on the case of downloading the game from PSN (remember there's no disc), which took 45mins on BT Infinity, and then about 5 mins to install. My son then kicked the game off while I watched the 2nd half of the CL defeat of Chelsea, when I returned to check on progress I found him in a state of deep enthrallment and completely immersed in the gameplay, so much for a girlie game.

The in-game world is exquisitely realised, with a 3-D cut-out effect of the fairytale land where everyone speaks in verse and strange creatures lurk in the recesses. As it is effectively a side-scroller the right stick is reserved for your companion; a bright blue light who helps you with the puzzles. This character can also be controlled by a 2nd controller. There is a progressively harder RPG element but with a really impressive learning curve, so new-comers need not be put-off.

I would fully recommend this title to anyone looking for a change to the grind of shooting enemies in the face. Perfect scores from me.

Such a beautiful fairy tale RPG game, buying the collectable edition id say was worth it being very cheap not to mention it comes with both PS4 & PS3 versions allowing you to play through it twice and earn trophys twice :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Old and New combined. 8 Nov 2014
By Jordan
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3 + PlayStation 4| Edition:Deluxe Edition|Verified Purchase
Absoulutely fantastic game.

The game reminds me a lot of old rpgs but with a modern aesthetic, the OST is a must have.

This version comes with a Igniculas keyring (probably spelling that wrong...), a small artbook, a small Poster, and 2 pieces of DLC as well as the code for the game itself. There is no disc, but for the price I can't really complain. Its not often a digital only game gets a physical collectors edition after all.

I think I'm maybe half way through the game at this point and I'm loving every minute of it. Combat is a great deal of fun surprisingly, taking place on a timeline at the bottom of the screen which decides when your action will take place. If you get interrupted you get pushed back a place on the timeline. You can also slow your opponents down with the edition of your firefly companion Igniculas. It is an elegant system and one that is easy to learn but difficult to master.

If I had one complaint and it isn't really the games fault or Amazons, its that Ubisoft decided to package the Deluxe edition in a flimsy cardboard box, with a plastic inlay inside to hold the keychain. The box was slightly dented after its journey in the post and is a real fiddle to get stuff out of. Personally I would have recommended something a little more sturdy and would have happily paid for it. Oh well...

Overall I can't recommend this game enough at the moment, and would seriously recommend buying it to anyone who loves RPG's or twisted fairytales.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks and plays like a childhood fairytale 5 Nov 2014
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3 + PlayStation 4|Edition:Deluxe Edition
Child of Light is a beautifully illustrated game created with the UbiArt engine used to make the newest games in the successful Rayman series. This engine allows for brilliantly animated whimsical comic/hand-drawn sprites and has been used to create a number of fine-looking games so far such as Rayman Legends and Valiant Hearts.

In the game we find ourselves in control of Aurora, a young girl who has slipped into the mysterious and beautiful netherworld of Lemuria upon her death in real-life Austria. In order to return to her father, who has fallen gravely ill upon his daughter's apparent demise, she must collect the celestial bodies of the sun, stars and moon that have been stolen by nefarious baddies and return them to their rightful place.

The game plays out as a 2D scroller until you encounter an enemy. Then it becomes an essentially old school turn based RPG with a few additional tweaks here and there. Enemies and player controlled characters take turns in which to attack using a time bar displayed along the bottom of the screen, much like the Final Fantasy games of old. However, Igniculus, your firefly-like companion, can be controlled either with one of the analog sticks or by a second player and used to either heal the player's team or conversely slow down the enemies you are facing. Defeating enemies earns the player EXP which levels up their stats and allows them to become stronger. You will also receive one Skill Point per level which can be used to upgrade and unlock new abilities.

I found the combat to be frustrating and somewhat difficult at first (I played on the hardest difficulty setting).
